Thesis Analytical Notes

Organisation of this study

Part A: Synopsis of Turntablism, 1877 through 2013 is an overview of the turntable-as-instrument and how composers, musicians and sound artists have engaged with it. Part A features my exploration of turntablism and the associated technology, but does not feature my original scores.

Part B: Philosophy, Creative Process and Folio of Original Works is an explanation of my new philosophy on music, creative process and compositions.
